Antiquing & Shopping Around Saugatuck MI

In addition to the beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline with stunning sunsets, vineyards, wineries and orchards galore, not to mention farm-to-table dining and farmers markets, our neck of the woods is also teeming with places to shop, from antique stores and malls to unique boutiques and shops that sell everything you can imagine. Here is your guide to shopping and antiquing around Saugatuck, MI, including Holland and Douglas.

Antique Stores & Malls

What is it about antiquing that draws so many people from all over the world? If you’re new to antiquing, you may be wondering what all the fuss is about, or why there is such a draw for used or old items. For one, antique stores provide the opportunity to find something that no one else has, a truly “rare find.” For two, antique or vintage items tell a story about people and history, and they can also elicit a feeling of nostalgia and comfort when they’re in our possession.

When you’re shopping for antiques, plan to spend a few hours so you have time to browse, and keep your mind open to new ideas. An antique pail could be used as a vase for fresh flowers for that farmhouse or cottage style look. A weaved low profile basket could sit on the coffee table as a tray to hold pretty items, or hang on the wall as art. Different sizes and styles of tables can be used in a variety of ways: as a console table in the foyer, as a sofa or end table in the living room, or as a nightstand in the bedroom.

If you find an item you really like but the price seems too high, offer a lower price (but not too low), or ask how low the store can go. You may be surprised to learn that negotiations are a part of the experience.

Antiquing in the greater Holland, MI area is a great way to spend a summer afternoon or long weekend. Whether you’re looking for vintage threads, antique furniture, or one-of-a-king items, you’re sure to find it. Here are a few antique stores to add to your list.
